Day Planners and Personal Organizers

What They Do

Planners and organizers are simply tools to help you manage your life and career. The more complex and demanding your life and work, the more time management tools can help you track the details. There are many choices from paper-based calendars and notebooks to hand-held electronic systems. Find one that suits your current situation. In five years your needs may change and the planner that works so well for you now may need to be adapted or eliminated entirely. Planners and organizers are coming into widespread use. Some of the popular paper-based systems include: Franklin Day Planner, Day-Timer, The Personal Resource System, Geodex Systems and Day Runner, to name a few.

Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing a Paper-Based Planner

Organizers help professionals manage time, information and planning. A good system combines both long- and short-term planning options. This allows you to review major events throughout the year with more specific information month to month. For short range planning, there should be pages that present the entire week or separate pages per day.
